We recently talked to HerWay.com's Dating and Relationship Expert, DeAnna Lorraine about how to know it's time to say goodbye to a relationship.
If you disagree on movies and food, that's one thing. But what if you disagree on the things that matter most? "If you disagree on having kids, what religion to practice, what working hours to keep or job title in general, take note." says Lorraine. "Know that you can't change someone unless they want to be changed, and if you fundamentally disagree on big core issues, chances are it's only going to get worse."
Sharon and her live-in boyfriend argued so much that she soon didn't know how to communicate at all with him if they weren't fighting. "When you fight frequently, you're constantly crying, doing the break-up-and-get-back-together cycle, or if he continually says mean things to you, it's tiem to move on," explains Lorraine. "Always remember it's the best it's going to get while you're dating. And if you're spending more time festering in negative energy instead of basking in the glow of a loving relationship, it's time to rethink where you're headed."
Attraction isn't everything, but it's a big part of things. If being affectionate and having sex with your partner seems forced (or you have started looking at others), then your relationship is on its last leg. If your gut instinct is telling you that you aren't in it for the long haul, break up now before you get in any deeper.
